   1: I will sing of the lovingkindness of Jehovah for ever: With my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
   2: For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever; Thy faithfulness wilt thou establish in the very heavens.
   3: I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant:
   4: Thy seed will I establish for ever, And build up thy throne to all generations. Selah
   5: And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Jehovah; Thy faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.
   6: For who in the skies can be compared unto Jehovah? Who among the sons of the mighty is like unto Jehovah,
   7: A God very terrible in the council of the holy ones, And to be feared above all them that are round about him?
   8: O Jehovah God of hosts, Who is a mighty one, like unto thee, O Jehovah? And thy faithfulness is round about thee.
   9: Thou rulest the pride of the sea: When the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them.
   10: Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; Thou hast scattered thine enemies with the arm of thy strength.
   11: The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: The world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.
   12: The north and the south, thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon rejoice in thy name.
   13: Thou hast a mighty arm; Strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand.
   14: Righteousness and justice are the foundation of thy throne: Lovingkindness and truth go before thy face.
   15: Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: They walk, O Jehovah, in the light of thy countenance.
   16: In thy name do they rejoice all the day; And in thy righteousness are they exalted.
   17: For thou art the glory of their strength; And in thy favor our horn shall be exalted.
   18: For our shield belongeth unto Jehovah; And our king to the Holy One of Israel.
   19: Then thou spakest in vision to thy saints, And saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.
   20: I have found David my servant; With my holy oil have I anointed him:
   21: With whom my hand shall be established; Mine arm also shall strengthen him.
   22: The enemy shall not exact from him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
   23: And I will beat down his adversaries before him, And smite them that hate him.
   24: But my faithfulness and my lovingkindness shall be with him; And in my name shall his horn be exalted.
   25: I will set his hand also on the sea, And his right hand on the rivers.
   26: He shall cry unto me, Thou art my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.
   27: I also will make him [my] first-born, The highest of the kings of the earth.
   28: My lovingkindness will I keep for him for evermore; And my covenant shall stand fast with him.
   29: His seed also will I make to endure for ever, And his throne as the days of heaven.
   30: If his children forsake my law, And walk not in mine ordinances;
   31: If they break my statutes, And keep not my commandments;
   32: Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.
   33: But my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, Nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
   34: My covenant will I not break, Nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
   35: Once have I sworn by my holiness: I will not lie unto David:
   36: His seed shall endure for ever, And his throne as the sun before me.
   37: It shall be established for ever as the moon, And [as] the faithful witness in the sky. Selah
   38: But thou hast cast off and rejected, Thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.
   39: Thou hast abhorred the covenant of thy servant: Thou hast profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.
   40: Thou hast broken down all his hedges; Thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin.
   41: All that pass by the way rob him: He is become a reproach to his neighbors.
   42: Thou hast exalted the right hand of his adversaries; Thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
   43: Yea, thou turnest back the edge of his sword, And hast not made him to stand in the battle.
   44: Thou hast made his brightness to cease, And cast his throne down to the ground.
   45: The days of his youth hast thou shortened: Thou hast covered him with shame. Selah
   46: How long, O Jehovah? wilt thou hide thyself for ever? [How long] shall thy wrath burn like fire?
   47: Oh remember how short my time is: For what vanity hast thou created all the children of men!
   48: What man is he that shall live and not see death, That shall deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah
   49: Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses, Which thou swarest unto David in thy faithfulness?
   50: Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; How I do bear in my bosom [the reproach of] all the mighty peoples,
   51: Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O Jehovah, Wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
   52: Blessed be Jehovah for evermore. Amen, and Amen. BOOK IV
